SCHVEITZER, Mariana Cabral et al. Research groups in nursing education: characterization of three regions of Brazil. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.spe, pp. 117-123. ISSN 0104-0707. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072011000500015.
This study aims to identify and characterize the scientific production from nursing education research groups in the North, Northeast, and Midwest regions of Brazil. It involves documental, descriptive, exploratory, and quantitative research. The North, Northeast, and Midwest regions account for 98 Nursing Research Groups, 26% of the national total, and twelve in the area of nursing education. There are 140 researchers, 120 students, and 22 technicians registered. From 1995 to 2008, these groups produced 275 research papers in conference proceedings, 383 book chapters, 135 books, and 455 scientific articles. Forming and maintaining nursing education research groups in the different scenarios of Brazil requires discipline and support from diverse health and education organizations to reduce inequalities and promote the production of knowledge. Therefore, scientific production may be one manner to socialize such knowledge and discuss nursing education on regional and national levels
